just a quick work on floyd boots...there are a couple of BBC archived shows available that are just amazing....

listening to old floyd shows really makes me appreciate the band so much more to say the very least...

BBC Archives disk is from a bbc show in 70 and another from cool thing is to listen to fat old sun one year apart...the 70 show also has if and atom heart mother with 71 including the embroyo and echoes...both shows are highly recommended...

I also found another BBC show recently where they do the complete dark side of the moon with an added echoes as a bonus...I tired of dark side long ago due to all of the radio play, etc., etc., but the live version is pretty well set in the is kick ass...

Since floyd used live performance to work out their compositions/tunes you can find some real nuggets in their is cool seeing how songs developed from a simple idea into a studio can really see this with wish you where here since they did a number of those tunes prior to completing the studio work...

btw: I read last week where floyd was playing the warehouse in NO, LA about the same time as the bust and TC's departure in 01-70...and they ended up having the majority of their gear stolen while there...the gear was stolen after the picture was taken for the album photo spread, was it Atom Heart Mother...anyway, the robbery stopped them from going to NO for decades...does that remind you of anyone?

I know about live Floyd,especially the early/mid period stuff.A real mindblower they can be.
I have the '70/'71 BBC but are earlier non-BBC Archive releases.Also have Project Birmingham.So-so sound,but what a show.Really dig the San Fran '70 show.
Do you know the Zabriskie outtakes?Not live but some really trippy tracks among them.
I'm totally inept with computers.My mind is stuck in the 70's.Vintage audio?I DO know that!
Gotta take a look at yeeshkul site & see about getting newer versions on disc.
Shine on,and on,and on.......

Earlier this year I went on a search for the soundtrack of Zabriske Point since it had been a lost memory from my college daze though I recalled some good tunes...

One track is "come in number 5" which is really "careful with that axe eugene". It also has an early version of us and them...

One of the reasons that I first posted info on the movie was that jerry plays an acoustic track. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a copy of the jerry tune, just the floyd tracks which are still worth the listen.

There is a great french site that has the majority of floyd shows in flac/shn file formats, as well as in mp3. I don't have the address on this machine but you can google seedfloyd to find it very easily.

btw: It looks like the full dark side show that I reference in my post above is from 1974-11-16 - Wembley Stadium.
